Mapping out Wildlife
Jason LaFerrera‘s artwork is all about digitally editing and composing maps to form birds, deers, rabbits, butterflies, and other animals.
Notes from the artist’s statement:
The textures and contours of old maps are fascinating, even the tattered and stained parts. In this series, I digitally manipulate cartographic materials to create fauna, mostly birds, in poses reminiscent of field guides from a similarly early era of publication. The patterns of forests and shores often become an animal’s feathers or fur, while the rings of topography often trace out wings or antlers.
